Why did Kuwait deport Indian Muslims who protested against Nupur Sharma?

Kuwait has announced that it will deport expats who participated in the protests over BJP spokesman Nupur Sharma’s suspended comments against the Prophet Muhammad, Arab Times reported.

Expatriate Muslims had gathered in the Fahaheel area of ​​Kuwait City in Kuwait on Friday, June 10, and staged a demonstration against former BJP spokesman Nupur Sharma over his comments about the Prophet Muhammad. Protesters chanted slogans against Sharma and in support of the Prophet Muhammad during the rally.

The protesters are suspected of violating state laws and regulations that prohibit expatriate protests or demonstrations in Kuwait. “The source confirmed that they would be deported from Kuwait because they violated the country’s laws and regulations stipulating that expatriate sit-ins or demonstrations should not be held in Kuwait,” the report said.

The Kuwaiti government has issued new instructions on this dispute, according to which those who protest against the statement will be sent back to their respective countries. The government has said, “All migrants should respect the law and should not take part in any kind of precaution.”

Protesters could include expats from Pakistan, Bangladesh and Arab countries as well as India.

On Friday, June 10, after Friday prayers, 40-50 migrants began to protest and shout slogans in the Fahaheel area of ​​Kuwait.

Demonstrations and agitation by foreigners in Kuwait are considered serious crimes. The government also wants to set an example in this regard so that in the future migrants cannot violate the law in this way. The Kuwaiti government may also take appropriate action against local people who have participated in these sit-in demonstrations.

Kuwait is one of India’s oldest allies in the region and the royal family here has historical ties to India. Kuwait was the main country supplying medical oxygen to India during the second wave that came to India due to the delta variant of the coronavirus.

Last year, Foreign Minister S. Jaishankar reached Kuwait with PM Modi’s message. During this time, he had met with all the high-ranking officials including the Prime Minister here.
